Guided Analytical Meditation. THE FOUR IMMEASURABLES or “boundless states”— love, compassion, joy, and equanimity— are widely taught and practiced in both the Pāli and Sanskrit traditions. They are called “immeasurable” because they are directed toward immeasurable sentient beings with a mind free from partiality and because they are states of jhāna 1 that are not limited by the five hindrances 2 of the desire-realm mind. They are also called the brahmavihāras after the brahmā...
